ABOUT US

Established 48 years ago, the Philippine Society of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology aims to promote and recognize the practice of allergy and immunology in the Philippines. Pioneered by the first Filipino allergist, Dr. Arturo B. Rotor and founded by Dr. Felicidad B. Cua-Lim, the first president of the society, PSAAI has come a long way locally and internationally.

Locally, PSAAI is a recognized specialty society of the Philippine Medical Association, a subspecialty society of the Philippine College of Physicians and a subspecialty section of the Philippine Pediatric Society. Internationally, the society is a recognized member in good standing of the World Allergy Organization (WAO) and the Asia Pacific Association of Allergology, Asthma and Clinical Immunology(APAAACI).

PSAAI is 134-members strong scattered all over the archipelago and are mostly products of three training institutions namely University of the Philippines-Philippine General Hospital, University of Santo Tomas Hospital and Fe Del Mundo Medical Center.

 

The COVID-19 pandemic will not hinder our continuing search for knowledge and thus we accept the many challenges it brings. This is a special event. For the first time, this 18th PSAAI Convention will bring you academic learning through a digital platform to a virtual conference. Join us on October 14 & 15, 2020 for our convention proper and on October 16, 2020 for our post graduate course as world class experts share their knowledge in allergy and immunology in the new normal. Explore the Allergy Village and discover the different facets of allergy and immunology. Visit our virtual exhibits for more learning and fun activities. Let us continue to equip ourselves with the armor of knowledge and the latest updates to be better physicians in our respective fields. Let us continue to face the challenges of the new normal.
